Vasectomy Reversal? A patient journey.

img_0603
This a drawing done for me by a urological professor in Italy. I had asked him to draw his interpretation of pregnancy after a reversal.
  • It all starts with the decision to begin the journey that is a vasectomy reversal.
  • The procedure is not coveredĀ  by insurance.
  • Success can’t be guaranteed.
  • Once the procedure is performed, it takes the testicles about three months to begin producing sperm again.
  • If pregnancy occurs, it is usually six to eighteen months after the procedure.
  • A lot of things have to come in to place and in many ways a pregnancy is “miracle.”

Many times I have said to the vasectomy reversal couple that you have to begin with the procedure to start the clock. Then live your life… as this is a “patient journey.”
